Getting lots of great queries thanks to the @WritersDigest feature!

For more info on what I enjoy, check out MSWL (manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…) and my blog post (scribblesandwanderlust.wordpress.com/2018/01/01/msw…). I hope you find this helpful! #amquerying #querytip #mswl

Would do backflips for a smart, funny, dark historical fiction centered on a 1950s or ‘60s beauty pageant #MSWL

Authors, I'm on the hunt for gentle bruisers.

That scary mofo coming at you in a dark alley? He’s an amazing lover & will make you breakfast just after he breaks some guy’s face. Any subgenre. If contemp I'm a big fan of @MollyOKwrites & @Charlotte_Stein.

Remember those shows PBS used to do like Frontier House and Regency House Party where modern peeps would "live" in the past? What about a book with that premise? Maybe a murder mystery. Maybe a rom com. I'm just spitballing, but I think I need this. #mswl

Annnd they have a jury and I’m not on it. #Dismissed Didn’t even get interviewed individually. Headed to the office Civic Duty COMPLETE!!! FYI: It was a criminal trial involving burglary.

ALSO If you’re working a #CR with a lawyer hero/heroine I want it!! #MSWL

@AlyssaJennette You mean like Stargate? Daniel is a translator.

They gloss over a lot of the things in this article, though, and he is just super-confident and able to translate something that sounds like archaic English super-quickly.

I mean ancient translation--Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Greek, Latin. I've always loved ancient cultures/documents/artifacts. I'd love a book centered around the discovery/emerging solution/process. I'm open to an invented culture, but I'm probably not the one for hard sci-fi. #MSWL

I'd like to see more light/fun contemporary YA or women's fiction set outside of the United States. I love to armchair travel! #MSWL

#MSWL forever: a novel that evokes the feeling of this @samknightwrites story, about the contestants on an experimental survivalist reality show that goes wrong, which I haven’t stopped thinking about for a year newyorker.com/magazine/2017/…

Still very much on my #MSWL: child psychopaths. Like BABY TEETH or the episode of SVU entitled ‘Born Psychopath’. (Read and watch, even if you don’t have that novel to query yourself!) It’s probably my #1 right now.

You know, I'd love to see a near-future fantasy or sci-fi that explores what the world, particularly the US, would look like if black americans got reparations. #MSWL

I just preordered #LittleWhiteLies by the talented @jenlynnbarnes ❤️ Wow, I can't wait to read this. It hits ALL my #MSWL wishes -- twisty family secrets, tomboy heroine, Southern sass, high society scandals... omg I can't wait to read this... #amreading
